PREPaRE 3rd Edition Curriculum

The third edition of the PREPaRE curriculum is now available. Completely revised and updated, the third edition curriculum provides current research and strategies for integrated school safety and crisis prevention, planning, response, and recovery efforts. All workshops include extensive resources and practical tools. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the third edition training of trainers workshops release has been delayed. We hope to release training of trainer workshops in late fall 2020. We strongly encourage current second edition trainers to upgrade.

The curriculum involves two core workshops and two corresponding training of trainer workshops. Read the summaries of each workshop here.

Please note: NASP is making temporary modifications to the 3rd Edition of PREPaRE to allow for virtual delivery of the core workshops due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Click here for the full announcement. 
Individuals who have completed third edition workshops can access their certificates of completion and workshop materials through your account in the PREPaRE Online Catalog. You can also access your workshop materials directly here using your NASP account login.
